J.J. Watt Gets Autographed Jersey From Very Confident 7-Year-Old

Already showing pro-level confidence, a 7-year-old football player autographed his own jersey and sent it to NFL star J.J. Watt.

In an adorable and very self-assured letter, Anthony Tarantelli told the Houston Texans defensive end that they both wear 99 and play the same positions. The lad even explained why he enclosed his owned signed uniform top: "so you will know me when I am a famous NFL player."

Watt clearly appreciated the gesture. He posted pictures of the note and jersey on social media.

"This kid has some guts," he wrote of the unique fan mail. "I like it."

This kid has some guts... I like it.
